This day begins with morning coffee and hot croissants in Franschhoek village, with time for a walkabout of the quaint shops and galleries along the high street. Our first tasting of wine will be at La Couronne, set high on a hill above the village. Apart from their flagship Ménage a Trois red blend, we will sample the 2003 Chardonnay and 2003 Sauvignon Blanc, both of which won Silver at the 2004 Michelangelo International Wine Show. We proceed through the beautiful valley called Groot Drakenstein, steeped in history and at one time the personal possession of Cecil John Rhodes. High on the Hels Hoogte road we stop in at Delaire, "the vineyard in the sky".

This is the highest altitude winery in South Africa, famous for their Botmaskop pure cabernet. Of this wine John Platter says: "Explosive statement wine, oozing sweet fruit, dense palate packed with savoury spice and blackcurrant". The road takes us down to the historic Stellenbosch Valley and the university town of Stellenbosch. Lunch is booked at the five-star Lanzerac Manor, built in 1692. Each dish of the five-course meal is accompanied by an appropriate wine from the estate, including the award-winning cabernet and chardonnay. We return to Cape Town after a long and leisurely lunch at Lanzerac!

Airfare is not included in the tour price.

Our tour price includes all entrance fees to the vineyards, wine tastings, transportation, guide, pick-up and drop-off at their Cape Town hotel, however lunch is to own account.
